DIY Chic Wall Art & Polaroid Display | Home Decor | ANN LE

– Hey guys, how’s it going? Welcome back to DIY Sunday. Today’s project we are going to be repurposing some old picture frames. So if you have any old pictures frames in your home take that out, or go to your local thrift store. So for this first method
and this first display, I really love it because it inspire me every morning and every night. And when I look at it in the morning I think of starting fresh, starting new, starting with a blank canvas. And then before I go to bed at night, I look at it and I just
think of dream big, you know? There’s so many possibilities. Just keep on dreaming. And for the second display, it’s really cute because if you do have Polaroid pictures or any photos, and you don’t know what to do with them, this is a really fun and simple way on showcasing your pictures. So let’s get started with this. Let’s jump right into materials. All you will need for this tutorial are some empty picture frames. If you don’t have any, check out your local thrift store. They have some really inexpensive ones. I also got mine from my local craft store. Next you will need some paint primer, a paintbrush, and a color
paint of your choice. So let’s start off with
some clean picture frames. Lay these onto a flat surface. And make sure to use some newspaper or something underneath to prevent any paint from spilling onto your floor. Take out your primer spray, shake it well and go ahead and spray it along to
all sides of the frame. Now the reason why
we’re using paint primer is because it will help your
paint adhere to the surface. Paint primer’s also very helpful to use because it helps you achieve the vibrancy of color you’re going for. After you cover all
surfaces with your primer, let this set for one to two hours before moving on to the next step. Now that the primer is dry and set, I’m going to take my paintbrush and paint along the sides of the frame. You will probably need to paint up to two coats in order to cover up all the crevices and
get your desired shade. What I would suggest for you to do is while you wait in between coats, you can cover your paintbrush
with some plastic bag in order to save your paintbrush, and then once you’re ready to paint on your next coat, take it out. Now that the frames are set and dry, it is now time to hang them up. I like to start off with the bigger frames then work my way to the smaller ones. I usually hang the smaller frames around and surrounding the bigger frame. For the lighter frames you can use a tack to pin onto the wall and
then hang your frames up. For the bigger and heavier one, what I would suggest for you to use is a nail and hammer. To hang up fun and cute photos, what I like to do with my empty frames is that I would cut off a string and then with two tacks I would pin them or hammer them onto the sides to hold up the string. Lastly, I would take some clothing pins, clip them along the line, and then hang up my pictures. Alrighty everyone, so
that is it for today. If you do like this video, then don’t forget to thumbs

guys what it means to me, and I’d love to hear
what your take on it is. So, I will talk to you guys next week. Bye.
